YOU READ THAT RIGHT, friends. This is a rare gem. RING A DING DING. Come hear the banjo play.
First I want to thank lorasyrels for making such a helpful list of incest recs. I never would have seen Call Me Fitz if it weren’t for that list.
I also want to say that I’ve uploaded all of the relevant scenes, either to be watched in a playlist here or you can download a zip with all of the .avi files here.
Call Me Fitz is a ½ hour comedy that ran for four seasons on HBO Canada. (I can find no official announcement about its ending – every site seems to list it as current, and yet the last episode was over a year ago. In my opinion, the show has ended, and it was planned. The last episode worked perfectly as a series finale in several ways, and the other season finales had cliffhangers and nothing conclusive about them. And also because there is no information about a fifth season being in the works, which there would be by now.)
In the tradition of U.S. HBO anything goes with the language, the content is rated H for “holy crap” and the story is told in a serial rather than episodic format.
The Secret of Moonacre was recommended to me last week by an Anon who should be honored and praised.
It’s basically Beauty and the Beast, if the beast were Belle’s uncle.
This is not a brother/sister ship, and so it shouldn’t really be on this blog, but the truth is that I forgot that this blog was titled shipping brother/sister incest until after I published, because I have not restricted myself in that way on my tumblr. So I apologize.
The Secret of Moonacre is based on a novel from the 40’s and it’s very much in the same vein as The Secret Garden or The Secret of Roan Inish. And I’m not just saying that because it has “secret” in the title. It’s a fantasy/period (19th century) movie about Maria Merryweather (Dakota Blue Richards), who at age 13 becomes an orphan and goes to live with the reclusive, grumpy uncle she has never met, Sir Benjamin Merryweather (Ioan Gruffudd).
